Simon in Brilliance Sky Blue

Here is my Simon Cat. He is from the Inkadinkado "Gemstone Cats" set and stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue. I attached some different size clear rhinestones on his bod and blue marquis shaped for his eyes. I hunted EVERYWHERE the other week for that shape only to find just last night that I have a whole bag of them stashed in a bowl that never gets opened. Have all kinds of shapes in there. The sentiment is from the Inkidinkado "Friendly Advice" set stamped with Stazon Brown. All cardstock is DCWV. Also attached some rhinestones to inside corner.

I didn't know how I would like this stamp but now I do think it is a favorite. This is Mia and she is stamped in Brown Stazon. All cardstock is DCWV "Pets" and "Brights" stack. The base card is a Brazzill French Vanilla, all the paper I have and I didn't have a off white of any sort. Mia is from Inkadinkado "Patterned Pets" set and the "Always Friends" is from Hero Arts "Playful Animals" set. Used my circle & scalloped circle punch and attached with piece of gross grain brown ribbon. Also used my bubble border from EK Success, finally. All edges have been rounded as well as my matted

Horse coaster

Well, I tried another coaster. Purchased from Lowe's. I have been wanting to do something with this Inkidinkado "Horses" stamp set I have. Stamped this one with brown Stazon and sponged the same around the edge. Still want to heat set it to be on the safe side. Will hopefully get some more done this week and decide on a way to present them.

FiFi in Rocket Red Gold

Here is FiFi in Brilliance Rocket Red Gold. Same DCWV stack and solids. She is from Inkadinkado "Cats" set. Used a round corner punch with tiny heart. Tied a piece of grossgrain brown ribbon. Inside is double matted also with the corners rounded. Extra postage on this one.

FiFi in gold

Thought I would start naming my cat & dog stamps so I don't get them too confused. This is FiFi and she is stamped in Galaxy Gold Brilliance from an Inkadinkado "Cats" stamp set. Striped paper is from the DCWV "Pets" stack. Added green ribbon and a few dew drops. Inside is stamped with a SeeD's border stamp with the same ink.

Pocket calendar

here is one of those pocket calendars I altered. Got it from Michaels for $1. Used my DCWV "Pets" stack to cover front and back. Punched paw print and matted year dates on solid DCVW & Brazzill cardstock. I had made a circle punch that fits inside the paw print punch that was coated with tack it over and over. That way when I punch the print, it keeps it together, then just add adhesive and the circle pulls right off. But... of course, it disappeared! And I was to impatient to make another one and wait for it to dry. Guess I should still do that for future paw punches. O, the inside of the calendar also has dogs on all the pages, that is how it came.

Final Kitty page for now

This is the last of my scrapbook pages to share for now. Have to get on some more today. After cards, cleaning, gym, shopping, laundry, dinner........ Just not enough time.

"Animal Cracker" pages

All of these pages are from DCWV "Animal Cracker" stack. The top one reminds me of Froot Loops. Tried finding tiny punches for the matted journal sections but couldn't find any so 2nd page down does have a tiny frog punched in smallest section.

More Dog pages

Plaid Cat Scrapbook page

Another 12x12 scrapbook page made with DCWV "Pets" & solid colors cardstock. If you look close, there is a tiny cat punched out of the small reddish square.

Kitty scrapbook page

This is 12x12 page created with DCWV "Pets" cardstock and solid colors. Wanted the top layers to be on the bottom but after I already taped them on, I realized all the printed words would be upside down so I turned it around and altered the position of the other matted sections. There is a little punch out on the orange rectangle which I did mount onto the base (no pop dots) so it can be used for journaling.

Patchwork Paws Card

Here is another card I finished using DCWV cardstock. Punched squares with McGill 1 1/4" deckle square and attached with pop dots after punching paw print in each with my Marvy punch. Wanted to make paw prints going different directions but just couldn't manuver that.

Orange Gem Dog Card

Another Doggie card I finished. All paper/cardstock is DCWV, patterned is from the "Pet" stack. Stamp is Inkidinkado "Dogs". Stamped with Stazon Brown and added different sizes of orange gems and blue on the collar. Spellbinders for scalloped rectangles.

Another Doggie card

Ok, this one similar to last. All DCWV cardstock from the "Pets" stack and "Brights" stack. Base is of a cream color cardstock with a patterened piece layered on top. I punched 12 different deckled edge squares with my McGill 1 1/4" punch. Carefully adheared them to the base. Stamped the doggie from Inkidinkado "Dogs" stamp set with brown Stazon ink onto white DCWV cardstock which I layered onto a mustardie colored from DCWV "Neutrals" stack. Cut edge of each with deckeled edge scissors. The "Woof!" is from the same stamp set. Added couple Dew Drops and attached with pop dots. Inside is single layer of the mustard colored cardstock with tiny paw prints going up the side. Hope you like.

Doggie card

Here is a card I made with my Inkidinkado Gemstone Dog stamps. I started with white cardstock base. Added patterened cardstock from DCWV "Pets" stack. Stamped a Gemstone Dog with brown stazon onto DCWV cardstock. Layered it on a light blue then dark brown DCWV. The words are from a $1 stamp set I got at JoAnn's but cut it up so I could fit it in a circle punch which I layered onto a scalloped punch out. Used some Marvy LePlume II pens to color him in a bit then added several sizes of light blue rhinestones. I had the crazy thought I would buy all Swarovski crystals but realized how much money I would be getting into and not too many people are going to care how much the stones cost when it comes to buying these cards. I then attached the dog and saying with pop dots. Inside is layer of Light blue cardstock with a large paw print stamp on lower right corner.

Recipe Card

Here is a 6x6 recipe cards
I made. 1st one uses some of the new
Stampin Up colors. Rounded all the
edges, yes it took some time to do
20 cards! Punched some daisy's with
my Marvy punch. Used "One of A
Kind" stamp set with Brown Staz-on,
Colorbox turquoise and Versa Mark on the
Pink card. The chicken is good. So much
junk in the background!!!!

10th Anniversary Card

Still don't know why these don't load in the order I want them too!!

This is an Anniversary card I made for my brother and sister-in-law. Used all DCWV cardstock. Used Spellbinder scallop circle and standard circle for front piece as well as circle on inside. Stampin Up "Paint Prints" for the center flower.

Tree-tops card

It is hard to see but I used a dark plum colored cardstock for the
base of this card. Added white on top as well as to the inside.
Used the Cuttlebug Joy & Cheer folder on some red cardstock.
Didn't know for sure what to do with the Cuttlebug 2 step 3x3 Tree Tops die/folder. So, cut one set from white cardstock and one from green. Just layered here and there.

Snowflake card

Here is Holiday card I made using some Cuttlebug items. White card base, a dark red vellum paper that has tiny snowflake like designs on it- got from Michaels long ago so don't know what brand it is. I used Cuttlebug Snowflake dot folder to emboss the red, not sure the exact name of the folder and I think there are 2 snowflakes ones. I then used a 3x3 combo snowflake die/folder for the silver snowflake. Found some shiny papers in my stash and thought it would work for this. I then used my Craft Light Cutter with the "stamp" blade to cut out the silver piece on the bottom and stamped with Stazon and an Inkadinkado Holiday stamp. I do like the silver snowflake.

1st pet scrapbook page

Now I have to get rolling! This is only my 1st scrapbook page created for our retail spot that opens Oct. 1st. I have so much to do. I used DCWV "Pets" & "Brights" cardstock on all.
